Engagement opportunities for schools

Music provision, opportunities and information for all schools across Derby and Derbyshire.

Music Education Hubs deliver musical activities in schools and ensemble activities with a joined-up approach involving local authorities, music services, other music education providers and communities. All work together to deliver the National Plan for Music Education.

Covid Safety

We are committed to ensuring that our music provision is safe to undertake in and out of schools during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Musical activities in schools are only taking place with recommended control measures in place and after an appropriate risk assessment has been carried out. Our workforce has received CPD on these measures, will adhere to schools' safety routines and follow Test and Trace procedures to ensure risk is minimised at all times.

Contact us if you have any questions.
